Abstract : The Hydrographic and Oceanographic Service of the French Navy (Shom), based in the city of Brest, has held one of the most important documentary repositories in its field for 300 years. A graduate of the Naval School of the same city in the mid 19th century, Francisco Beuf, played a leading role in the beginnings of the Argentine Naval Hydrographic Service and the Argentine Naval School, where he settled at a time when the two countries' governments became closer, around 1880. This paper aims to contribute to the understanding of the transfer of hydrographic and astronomical knowledge, cultivated for centuries in France, to Argentina through two instances: Beuf's establishment within the alliance of actors from science, politics and the French navy with the purpose of sustaining international leadership, and the cooperation established between both governments during the scientific expedition of the French ship La Romanche in 1882 to Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego. The relevance of this type of comparative approach to the knowledge of the dynamics of interaction between the elites of port cities and the cultural and heritage formation of port landscapes is also highlighted.
